RICHMOND — All Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) full-service customer service centers will be closed on the following days for state holidays and observances: Jan. 12, Lee-Jackson Day; Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr. Day; Feb. 19, George Washington Day; May 28, Memorial Day; July 4, Independence Day; Sept. 3, Labor Day; Oct. 8, Columbus Day; Nov. 12, Veterans Day.

According to a press release the holiday schedule for Thanksgiving and Christmas will be announced at a later date.

“DMV customers are encouraged to save time — and perhaps a few dollars — by taking advantage of more than 40 transactions available online at,” officials said in the release. “For example, a customer can renew his vehicle registration online on a holiday and avoid a last-minute trip to DMV when the office reopens and a $5 in person fee.”
